The Quantikine Human MCP-1 Immunoassay is a 3.5 or 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure MCP-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human MCP-1 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant human MCP-1. Results obtained using natural human ...MCP-1 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human MCP-1.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.

Alternate Names for Human CCL2/MCP-1 Quantikine ELISA Kit
C-C motif chemokine ligand 2
CCL2/JE/MCP-1, is a chemokine that binds the receptor CCR2 and induces the chemoattraction of mononuclear cells. It induces the activation of monocytes, NK cells, lymphocytes, and basophils. Additionally, CCL2 promotes Th2 polarization in CD4+ T cells, and CCL2-mediated recruitment of monocytes to sites of inflammation contributes to disease severity in atherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and allergic asthma. Endogenous proteolytic trimming of CCL2 at the N-terminus, including the N-terminal pyrrolidone carboxylic acid-modified glutamine, downregulates activity but not receptor binding.
